. as this change, because president clinton decided that he was going to do something about it and he got the system moving. >> let me pick up on that. we are here in this clinton library and i want to bring this back to president clinton. there are more than 40 patients between the situation room and the oval office. rarely do national security advisers get fired when things go wrong but the president could get thrown out of office and i can assure you, the appetite for american boots on the ground in 1995 than there is in 2013. we have gone through somalia, black hawk down, we didn't have a great experience in haiti, no appetite for putting 25,000 troops into bosnia and even in the context of peace agreements most people couldn't tell you where bosnia was on the map. inevitably the peace agreement would be shaky and it was an extraordinarily courageous decision i think. we would not have had peace. that was the centerpiece of the end game because once we said we will be there to enforce the peace, that was the key decision. then there was confidence that a peace agreement actually could

were called the most heartless people of all time. we passed it over two bill clinton wes to. he signed at any time third time. most everybody said that it was a great success. even people for children's defense fund said the most heinous things about us. that's one side of the argument. the other side of the argument is that and this is -- something i'm debating between myself so please some acting so shocked and stunned. there are real policy -- >> i'm trying to understand. >> i just explained the first part to you. people like you said we were hateful human beings back in 1996. >> for the record i was in favor of that and we did it before bill clinton. >> the second part really quickly is, second part is this is a recession unlike most recessions, and i can tell you when my father was unemployed in the recession in the early 1970s and getting $40 a week for mississippi for unemployment benefits and got one bag of groceries and fill up one tank of gas, if somebody had told us over that year and a half and my danielle adams was driving around the southeast with all of us trying to find

president reagan in 1988. it was re-authorized under president clinton. it was re-authorized again in 2003 under president bush. when ronald reagan and bill clinton and george bush agree on something, so should we. this has always been a matter of bipartisanship and so we should continue that bipartisanship and pass this bill today. it's bipartisan baups it is a matter of -- because it is a matter of common sense that we don't want to make it easy for errorists and criminals to bring guns past metal detectors onto our planes and into security environments. -- secure environments. now, as the gentleman from virginia stated, in our view this bill is not perfect. i would have preferred to modernize the undetectable firearms act, to eliminate some loopholes in the law. y requiring that certain metal components be permanent or not . sily removed i would have liked to close that loophole. but frankly i believe that even a loophole in a law is better than no loophole at all, a loophole can be closed down the line, that is a preferred scenario to no law at all. and so i'm not going to oppose this
are not that of george w. bush, they are not of bill clinton, they are of hits. yes, the obama record poses a fundamental threat to millions of americans and he's got that right. take a look under mr. obama. the income gap, four times faster has expanded four times faster than it did under president george bush. under president obama, 6.7 americans in the millions have fallen into poverty. the same one that had the audacity to stand before the cameras and speak as though he had absolutely been uninvolvee and policies for the past five years. it's an extraordinary thought. the number of workers receiving disability benefits under his administration over the course of the past five years has risen by 20% to almost 9 million people. 9 million people under president obama. under president obama, 21.6 americans are underemployed or unemployed and giving up looking for work. under president obama, the average duration has nearly doubled to more than 36 weeks and today, president obama joined the nearly 70% of voters who say that the united states is now headed in the wrong direction. so often it seems that you
nixon, ronald reagan, bill clinton -- you look at their calendar and you can see what's important to them. even if you don't know anything about what was going on at that time, look at that calendar and you'll see what their priorities are. in the case of president obama, if you look at his calendar, there is no evidence whatsoever that is focused or has much interest in health care at all. >> they say that -- they went on to say they have a list of all their meetings. 277 private meetings with 16 other cabinet members. 277 with 16 other cabinetmakers -- cabinetmakers, they pretty much make their own cabinets in the white house. so that just shows a lack of focus, a lack of interest. it remind me of the fact that i remember when james woolsey was the director of the c.i.a. with bill clinton. he didn't have much interest in surveillance, intelligence and international affairs when he got started. it all changes and people used to say james woolsey never gets to see the president. it does play into a narrative we're beginning to see. it's beginning to show the president, even though
. he was a man of tremendous moral courage who changed the his country. martha: president clinton said this. history will remember nelson mandela as a champion for human dignity and freedom for peace and reconciliation. we will remember him as a man of uncommon grace and compassion for whom abandoning builterness and embracing adversaries was not just a political strategy but a way of life. bill: as we mentioned a moment ago the plans for the memorial service and the funeral, they have been underway for quite some time. this will be a massive undertaking. some describing the planning as dealing with the opening and closing of the world cup. an inauguration, a coronation, all combined. there will be tens of thousands at the first public memorial event. that's set for tuesday at the soccer stadium in soweto. mandela made his last public appearance there at the world cup final in 2010. mandela's body will lie in state in three days in pretoria. he will be buried on the grounds of his childhood home in south africa. martha: we'll have more on the amazing life of nelson mandela. fox news po

not abandon friends. for example, something that i know president clinton has talked about, he always disagreed with president mandela on the issue of cuba and on his relationship with fidel castro. president mandela was not one to forget his friends. he also had such an impact on the african union and creation of the african union, making sure the countries in africa could stand together and do what was in the best interest of their people. sometimes that would not be necessarily what was in the best interest of our countries. he really works to make sure that it wasn't just the people of south africa has benefited from the struggle but that all people around the planet really knew that it was possible, you can make the impossible possible, that is what happened and to me what his life embodied. >> nicole, thank you for your time today. >> thank you, thank you. >> a cold snap is paralyzing travel both opt the roads and in the air. several deaths have been reported, linked to the icy weather, which is bringing snow to the midwest and central sufficient. all the way down to oh texas, o

[ cheering ] >> nelson mandela supporting and encouraging children in school. from the start of his career as an anti-apartheid activist, he placed education is the the center of the struggle. his single priority was develop the nation's education. in 197, the soweto up rising began over being forced to learn afrikaans, the language of the oppressors. noone of the students who rioted now is principal of the school. >> wlater because of they were trying to educate us and we begin to understand why the situation, why the up rising. >> reporter: here the students learn as nelson mandela, to educate black students to the level of their white counter parts, to give them purpose. >> they have struggled to fulfill mandela's vision. schools outside cape town are more typical of the problems that the system
